Eric Barkman is a bass player in body and soul, known for his solid beat and energetic appearance on stage.
At home in many music styles, preferably playing the electric double bass (stick bass), he has been the regular bass player for more than 20 years of top saxophonist Hans Dulfer. Together they toured around the world; from small bars to the well-known jazzclubs and major festivals. Eric made several CDs and performed with many renowned musicians.
For his newest project, he brings a Tribute to Legendary Bassplayers. It is a beautiful route through the history of the bass player and his own bass experiences from BeeBop to Dance / PowerJazz. Songs from and about Paul Chambers, Charles Mingus, James Jamerson, Marcus Miller, Nik West and Roni Size can be expected!
